1) Being able to pull multiple sources into one CXO-Cockpit
2) Having a live connection to HFM
3) Increased functionality of Extended Analytics
4) Delivering Hyperion information via the iPad
Our 4.1 release has embraced these new functionalities in combination with the existing powerful web-based capabilities of the 4.0 version, says Wouter Born.
In version 4.1 it is possible to combine the data from different sources into one CXO-Cockpit application. For example, within one application you can have reports based on an HFM application and reports on an Essbase application. The multi-source development is important for customers and prospects that have multiple instances of Hyperion data or that want to combine a Hyperion source with for instance another operational source (non Hyperion) system.
LIVE LINK TO HFM:
A new development that we are launching is a “live” link from HFM to CXO in version 4.1. With HFM Live Link in version 4.1 it is possible to set-up real time synchronization with Oracle Hyperion Financial Management. In a matter of seconds, data entered in HFM can be viewed in the CXO-Cockpit and will always be in sync with HFM. Our Live Link functionality will be part of our existing offering and will be delivered to our existing and new customers via our regular maintenance program at no additional cost.
IMPROVED VERSION OF HYPERION EXTENDED ANALYTICS:
Many Hyperion customers struggle to extract their HFM data to other systems. In fact we know from our own experience that this can be a very difficult job. Since the founding of the CXO-Cockpit roughly 4 years ago, Hyperion Extended Analytics has been an important part of our HFM based Solution. With our own highly tuned version of Extended Analytics we are able to easily export (all or just a selection) of HFM data to other sources at high speed. In version 4.1 we have further improved the extraction capabilities of Hyperion Extended Analytics. Please contact us directly to learn more about this topic.
HFM, ENTERPRISE, PLANNING, ESSBASE & HSF VIA APPLE'S iPad:
CXO-Cockpit for iPad provides mobile professionals with access to decision-critical business intelligence information through the intuitive and well acclaimed iPad interface. CXO-Cockpit for iPad takes Hyperion based business intelligence to a new level of touch-based interactivity, enabling exploration of Hyperion information without the limits of static reporting or being behind a computer connected to the network. With CXO-Cockpit for iPad, business users on the go can access their tailor-made Hyperion information whenever they need it.
We want to reach out to all Hyperion customers on a global basis with the message that there are alternative ways to review the output of your Hyperion applications”
CXO-COCKPIT, a different approach:
“With the launch of OBIEE 11G for the EPM product Suite, we know that Hyperion customers are looking for alternatives for web-based reporting and dashboards. The CXO-Cockpit Reporting Suite has a totally different approach than for instance OBIEE 11G. CXO-Cockpit is a 100% “finance owned” system, it is 100% focused on Hyperion applications (including Hyperion Enterprise) and is provided to our customers within just a simple one week implementation at very low total cost of ownership. If you want to learn more about the differences between Oracle OBIEE 11G and the CXO-Cockpit Reporting Suite, please check the COO Corner on our website” concludes Wouter Born.
About the CXO-Cockpit Community:
CXO Solutions delivers the CXO-Cockpit in a concept of co-creation. Its development is based on the best practices approach derived from the CXO-Cockpit Community. The CXO-Cockpit Community is a network of CFO’s, finance professionals from large organizations and University professors sharing their best practices for presentation of financial data. The Community ultimately drives the further development of the CXO-Cockpit.
